380. Fall Style 03.

Fall 01 by bethxlove featuring ballet shoes


I actually recreated this outfit last week! Boyfriend jeans have never appealed to me before, but after seeing the beautiful Sydney style them I'm totally convinced! Making them girly with an adorable leopard pump & a necklace. I felt a little 'too' smart in the blazer, even over my favourite white t-shirt, but after a while I got used to it! The perfect cover-up for fall, not too heavy or light & goes with anything!

Fall 02 by bethxlove featuring leopard scarves

Leopard print is one of my favourite patterns this fall, and a scarf's an easy way to add a little bit into your wardrobe. I love a slouchy jumper with skinny jeans, as it's comfortable (and easy to breastfeed in!) and I have have just ordered one like this with a heart from H&M! I love those boots too, but suede + rain = disaster, and wedges aren't ideal with two babies! I'm still quite tempted though!

377. My Little Picasso.

My parents bought Daniel this easel for his birthday, and we finally got it out last week! I can't believe it's taken me so long, it was so easy to put together and has provided hours of entertainment already! One side is a chalkboard, and the other side a whiteboard which we've been attaching paper to (there are handy little clips at the top!) and drawing/painting. We've used it both inside and outside, and the little trays are really useful for containing the mess from splattered paints and chalk dust!

I think I've mentioned before my love of being creative, so it makes my heart so happy to see Daniel enjoying it too! I like to have crayons and paper out at his level, to encourage him to use them whenever he pleases, and this easel is a perfect way to do that. Now just to make a permanent space for it in our toy room!

Fall 03 by bethxlove featuring a parka jacket

I've been looking everywhere for the perfect parka coat, something waterproof and warm for these cold days that are drawing in, and relatively inexpensice (I have way too many coats!) The skinny jeans and striped t-shirt are wardrobe staples for me, it's totally my Mom Uniform! I'm totally lusting after a pair of tan pumps - they go with anything & look like they might even keep my feet dry!

The lovely Deanna over at Delirious Rhapsody had the great idea of a Fall Fashion Week, and I was so excited to join in and take actual outfit photos, until I realised we would be away this week! I'd hoped it would be cool enough here last week to model a few cardigans but unfortunately (what am I saying?!) it was quite warm and we were totally jam-packed! Polyvore collages were the next best thing!

We're on our way to Spain right now, or we've arrived already, I'm not quite sure! So I'll be "out of the office" for the next week. I have a few posts scheduled, but there won't be any updates till we get back next Monday. Unrelated, I just totally broke the space button on my laptop!

Hopefully this week will be filled with sandcastles, ice-creams & giggles. Just like the pictures, from our holiday last year!

373. Small Style.

I took these pictures on a walk the other day. Daniel looked really cute & even had his baby in the pushchair which was adorable, I had to capture the moment! I love when he copies what we do, it absolutely melts my heart!

His checkered shirt (rolled up at the arms because it's slightly too small) & adorable shorts with braces are from H&M, his blue trainers are from NEXT. On a separate note, I can't pin any of the pictures from my posts onto Pinterest, does anyone know if I have to change any settings or anything?!

I'm spending tonight making lists & googling 'Travelling with toddlers' because we fly to Spain in two days! Any top tips would be greatly appreciated - we're already taking some new books and lollipops!

I'm too tired to write tonight, I'm already snuggled in bed before 9pm (Colin's out at football, plus it's warmer up here!) I plan on aimlessly pretend shopping, maybe placing a cheeky H&M order & reading a few blogs before getting a ridiculously early night. Today we went to toddlers and Tumble Tots, and spent the afternoon with my parents, tomorrow we're going to Legoland! Busy busy!

Linking up to The Paper Mama for Wordless Wednesday.

371. Three months old.

Three months. I won't play the same old record, but woah. Truthfully, I wonder what on earth we did before he was here! & can't imagine life without him now. My little nugget weighed 12lb 2oz at clinic two weeks ago, I don't think we'll be going too often because it took us nearly two hours & it clashes with toddlers. Still in mostly newborn clothes, 0-3 month sleepsuits & vests, but everything else is too long in the legs or wide round the middle. I did get out the 'small' 5kg+ nappies though, & using a mixture of them both. No real pattern to his feeding, just totally on demand, around 2 hours total for the day (seriously loving my breast feeding app!!) but no 'every two/three hours' which is actually fine with us. I'm starting to figure out the difference in his cries, and can sometimes tell what's wrong straight away. Kiddo's not a big crier, unless he's hungry or in his pushchair or car seat not moving (or when I'm putting the washing out!), then he really let's rip. Cooing and chatting all the time, especially to the duck on his bouncer or my phone case, his little noises are adorable and I must have 8472( videos of hm on my phone. Joshua loves to watch his brother play, and gets upset if he can't see what's going on, nosy inquisitive. He's starting to grab for toys a little, though often seems shocked by what he's done if he does get it, and drops it straight away! Sleeping pretty well, I've been putting him down in his Moses basket after his bedtime feed (around 8:30) and he's been falling asleep by himself and staying asleep until between 6-7. Perfect. During the day is another story, today for example he didn't sleep all day unless I was feeding him (& maybe 20 mins while I was running) until he crashed out at 7pm, just as I was about to get them ready for a bath! Other days he'll sleep for longer stretches, but often in the pushchair or the sofa. He's basically the happiest baby ever, as long as his milk's on tap & he's in on the action!

Joshua Reg,

I love the giant smiles you save for Daddy, I might be a little jealous but I just love watching your face light up when you see him!

I love your little chubby cheeks, especially when they're warm from nursing & I could just kiss them forever!

I love our daily cuddles, while Daniel's napping I feed you & watch you sleep in my arms. I could totally be doing something productive but I'm determined to soak in as much of you as possible while you're so small!

I love the gasps you make, trying to giggle when I talk to you and pull faces. Even when you're upset, you can't help but smile when I do!

I love you, sweet boy, so so much.
